There is a visible light and an infrared version available of the Raspberry Pi Camera v2 for $25 each. The RaspBerry team says: "In our testing, IMX219 has proven to be a fantastic choice.

I will be posting about my experience with this little, inexpensive sensor that offers multiple sensory data via Bluetooth LE soon.
